Addiction 101

Understanding addiction and recovery.


Addiction 101 is a one-day workshop designed to increase awareness and reduce the stigma associated with addiction - both at work and in everyday life. 

Our workshop

During Addiction 101, you will: 

  • use Te Whare Tapa Whā to understand addiction and recovery
  • recognise signs of addiction issues
  • relate brain and body responses to addiction
  • respond supportively to people experiencing addiction issues.

Quality learning

Blueprint for Learning is an NZQA accredited Private Training Establishment. We have the highest quality Category 1 External Education and Review rating in education achievement and self-assessment issued by NZQA.

Our training is interactive, participatory and experientially based – catering for the diverse needs of all our learners with an approach that consistently leads to exceptional levels of learner satisfaction.


Participants will be required to complete a short interactive e-learning module prior to attending the workshop. This module is designed to help participants recognise a range of substance, gambling and other problematic behaviours, explore the perception of harm associated with these behaviours and introduce the Te Whare Tapa Whā model of wellbeing.

Anytime, anywhere, and any industry

Addiction 101 is currently delivered to participants across New Zealand. It is fully funded by the Ministry of Health; there is no cost to participants.  We can accommodate up to 24 attendees in each workshop, which runs from 9.00am – 4.30pm. 

We can run workshops for a specific industry or workplace and will work with you to understand your industry and the people who will be attending.

Maintain your wellbeing

While New Zealand has moved to Level 2 and we are able to enjoy more freedoms and see friends and family, you may still be feeling increased levels of stress and anxiety. This is perfectly normal. Blueprint for Learning can help you learn how to maintain your wellbeing, and that of your whānau, during Covid-19.
